We’ll be updating our Ivy League Statistics — the most comprehensive database you’ll find anywhere on the subject of Ivy League admissions statistics — shortly but in the meantime, we figured we’d give our readers a sneak peak into the overall admission rates at non-Ivy League colleges this year and compare those figures to last year’s admission rates. We’ll of course focus only on some of the non-Ivy League highly selective schools since our readers probably aren’t interested in learning about Adelphi’s admission rates. Sorry, Adelphi.
Duke University saw a 10.4% admission rate. The previous year? 10%. Georgetown University saw a 16.4% admission rate. For the previous year, for the Class of 2019, that same statistic was 16.44%. Johns Hopkins University saw a 11.58% admission rate while the school had a 12.4% admission rate the previous cycle. Pomona College? 9.1% this year as compared to 9.76% the previous year. Vanderbilt University? 10% as compared to 11% last year. MIT? 7.81% compared to 8% last year. Amherst College? 13.7% this year — dead even with last year’s admission rate.
Middlebury College? 16.04% this year as compared to 17% for the Class of 2019. Tufts University offered admission this year to 14% of applicants as compared to 16% of last year’s pool. Swarthmore College stayed even at 12%. At the University of Chicago, the rate went the other way with the school offering admission to 7.9% of applicants this year as compared to 7.83% last year. Williams College’s rate climbed as well — the school offered admission to 17.27% of applicants this year compared to 16.8% of last year’s applicant pool. And how about Northwestern University? 10.69% as compared to 13.03% last year.
But Stanford takes the cake, offering admission to 4.69% of applicants to the Class of 2020. The Farm offered admission to 5.05% of applicants last year. Congratulations to all of Ivy Coach’s students who earned admission — and will be attending Stanford!
